2.0 out of 5 stars Their intended unlikeable flaws were over exaggerated and overpowered any inkling of sweetness that they were intended to have Sept. 29 2016

Whilst the story line had the chance to develop into an endearing story, I found it choppy and I never really cared about the characters. Their intended unlikeable flaws were over exaggerated and overpowered any inkling of sweetness that they were intended to have.

Decent movie. I thought the story line was pretty original and they played it well. If you like indie films, don't hesitate to watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Glad I Saw This Film May 20 2013
By hellomynameis - Published on
Came across this DVD, and because I'm a very particular film watcher, I was hesitant to sit and start watching it unless it was going to be a good movie. Two of the "user" reviews on IMDB didn't seem to get the film, but the trailer looked like just my kind of movie. As it turned out, I was delighted by the movie from beginning to end. It is one of those movies where the little details in the editing and the music scoring and the acting are so well done. The best thing about this movie is the performances of the elderly parents. Those are EXPERT actors. They know just what they're doing, from their big moments to the little glances and expressions. The film moves along so briskly and easily, and it ultimately provides two monologues for the elderly husband and the wife characters near the end of the film that allow the two actors to truly demonstrate their expertise in their craft. Watching the extra behind the scenes portion of the DVD revealed that all that precise editing (so well done) and the excellent photography were all accomplished with a micro budget and barely any crew at all (really just four or five people). This film really goes to show how filmmakers who really know what they're doing can do a lot on a very small budget and make it all look so smooth. I thoroughly enjoyed "Bomber," especially the performances of Benjamin Whitrow and Eileen Nicholas. They were both delightful and amazing. The writing is superb, and the story is funny, touching, and easy to take. The script and the acting provide insights into human nature and its emotional potential. Glad I saw it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah, the joys of family... Oct. 6 2010
By Chris Swanson - Published on
Format: DVD
(special thanks to Film Movement for providing me with a screener!)

Family is one of the few things in our lives we can't choose. You can reinvent yourself in many ways, but your family is something you're stuck with, for better or worse.

In the film Bomber, Ross (Shane Taylor), gets reminded of just how bad the "worse" part can be when he's stuck driving his elderly parents from England to a small town in Germany. Precisely why his father (Benjamin Whitrow), wants to go there is a mystery that's not revealed until fairly deep into the film.

Ross is a man who's clearly been hounded by his father his entire life. His dad is definitely one of those men who is never happy with anyone or anything. We never quite find out exactly why, but the trip to Germany offers at least something of an explanation. His mother (Eileen Nicholas), is a pleasant, long-suffering woman who clearly loves her husband and her son, and yet feels very alienated from both, which is no surprise given that neither treats her well.

This is a good movie, but not always an easy one to watch. Both Ross and his father are jerks, both to each other and to Ross' mother, throughout the film. Once Ross finds out why his dad is so keen to be in Germany, he calms down quite a bit. As for his father? He remains largely the same, though in the final scene we get a glimpse of hope for a better future.

== Short Subject ==

This month's short film is the German movie "Edgar". It's about an old, retired man whose wife died recently. He feels useless and wants to work. He goes to a department store looking for a job, and then accidentally leaves while holding an umbrella he didn't pay for. He's nabbed by the store security guard who explains that he won't have to worry about jail, but might have to do some court-ordered work. The old man gets a gleam in his eye...

To say more would spoil the movie. Suffice to say I really liked this short! It's intelligent, has a good message and the last scene had me laughing my backside off! Definitely worth seeing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Road Trip Worth Taking Nov. 2 2010
By kellyth - Published on
Format: DVD
"Bomber" does a great job of reminding you that sometimes the people you think you know the best, you don't really know at all. It takes a somewhat already dysfunctional family - distant father, frustrated mother, conflicted son - and throws them into the one situation that can take its toll on even the closest of families: a cross-country road trip. The film has all the usual road trip elements, from bickering drivers to tourist stops (courtesy of Mom's guidebook - gotta love when she takes a picture of son Ross pointing to a road sign. Whose mother hasn't made them do THAT on a family trip?)to trying to get directions in a country where nobody understands you. But it's the interaction between the family itself and the reason why they're on the trip in the first place (you have to see it to find out - no spoiler here)that really makes this film worth seeing. With just a small cast (three main characters, all brilliantly acted), you might think the story would drag but it doesn't. Driven by a good plot, some quirky situations, unexpected dialogue and excellent camera work (especially if you consider the movie's budget), it's a should-see. Watch it with your kids or your parents; you might be surprised at the reaction...
